i was wondering whats more stable right now because i cant download this i hafta order it on cd's so im wondering whats better to order core2 or core3 if core3's stability issues are easy to fix then i can probably handle it or learn how but if theres some major issues that need huge downloads to patch then i might need to stick with core2 but yea just stupid questions i guess just give me some opinions im pretty good with this stuff so i think i can handle most stuff but i was just curious before i orderd it on cd thanks

Check out the 3 Testing (http://fedoraforum.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=52) forum for current issues. If you can handle this and want the very latest, get it, else stick to Core 2.

Test releases are for developers and testers only, see the last fedora news summary (http://www.fedoranews.org/colin/fnu/issue15.shtml) on what a tester is supposed to do. If you're not a developer nor a tester, use a stable Core release.

Let me say this once more: Fedora Core test releases are development releases of which the only purpose is to improve Fedora Core before a new release.

If you want to help test, join the test mailing list and the devel list is a good idea as well. Always use latest stuff from rawhide and use bugzilla.redhat.com for bug rapports, if you don't file a single bug rapport or send a single mail to the testing list you're not supposed to be using a test release.
